As I post these I am even more and more convinced that there is something else at work with the Lyft matching algorithm. I run both apps evenly, and my Ignore criteria is the same on both apps for the most part.


Jan 15th thru 21st

Uber 53
Lyft 74

In app tippers (not $)
Uber 15
Lyft 28

Cash tippers (not $)
Uber 1
Lyft 1

Surges at 50% or greater
NONE on either

Paid cancellations
Uber 3
Lyft 1

Accept & Cancel ratings
Uber 77% & 5%
Lyft 75%

The matching....

Maybe its just me. I have long stated that my uber:lyft ratio is about 1:1. During Peak hours it is less on lyft, but throughout the week that ratio holds up. This week my ratio was almost 2:3 in favor of Lyft. How is that possible? Many other drivers have a much higher Uber ratio. My "Lyft luck" isnt just this week, i seem to get a lot more lyft than uber frequently. But why?????

Either Uber is shafting me, or Lyft is favoring me, or I am an ongoing statistical anomaly. I have pondered various reasons over the last year, and have some ideas why, but there is no way to confirm anything.

Ask me at the meeting tomorrow, i will share my ideas on why it may be, and you guys can give me your thoughts and input.
